Axial Rotordynamic Pump

Axial flow pumps have a motor-driven rotor that directs flow along a path parallel to the axis of the pump. The fluid thus travels in a relatively straight direction, from the inlet pipe through the pump to the outlet pipe. Axial flow pumps are most often used as compressors in turbo-jet engines. Centrifugal pumps are also used for this purpose, but axial flow pumps are more efficient.

Axial flow pumps require higher speeds than centrifugal pumps. TecQuipment’s axial flow pump is geared 2.5:1 to achieve the higher pump speeds required.

The axial flow pump, or AFP, is a common type of pump that essentially consists of a propeller (an axial impeller) in a pipe. The propeller can be riven directly by a sealed motor in the pipe or by electric motor or petrol/diesel engines mounted to the pipe from the outside or by a right-angle drive shaft that pierces the pipe.

One of the most common applications of AFPs would be in handling sewage from commercial, municipal and industrial sources.

Learning outcomes

• Understanding pump performance

• Creating characteristic curves from experimental data

• Investigating, analysing and comparing the characteristics of different pump types (if more than one pump is purchased).
